Isn't it similar then to my idea (in the bug report) of 2 (or 3, or 4 
even if that's really possible!) different "Wilber" in one image? Wilber 
being our Software icon, it is a good representation of an icon. Having 
2 or 3 of them, with different designs, in a single icons can mean 
"changing the icon theme".

And it may be more representative (IMHO) than "smileys" which don't 
fully represent icons.
Just saying. :-)
